Join Eve Porcello for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up React tools with Chrome, part of Learn React.js: The Basics (2015).
- React works well in all browsers…but there are some great developer tools available…as Chrome Extensions.…To install these extensions, you just navigate…to the Chrome Webstore in the Chrome browser.…The first extension we'll install is the React Detector.…So I'm just going to search for "react detector" here.…Then I will click on the button that says "Free"…and I'm going to add this to my browser.…The React Detector is going to let me know…whenever I'm on a page that has React code in it.…
So for example, if I refresh AirBnB,…we'll see the little logo here in our search bar.…Now that I know that this page has React on it,…I really wanna see the React components…that are on this page…and what the state of the DOM is.…So now I need to install the React developer tools.…This extension is going to let me see all of that.…So I'm going to type "react developer tools"…and I'll install this the exact same way.…I'll add this to my browser.…
Alright, I'm gonna switch over to my AirBnB tab,…and I'm going to hit Refresh.…
